I hate to sound like sour grapes here, but....
I was all set to order myself one of these cameras for Christmas.
I went to the BulletHD web site and saw the Christmas "special" (?)
with the SD card included and clicked on it.
When I looked at my cart, it showed TWENTY FIVE BUCKS FOR SHIPPING!!!
Really???? For a product that fits in the palm of your hand and weighs
only a few ounces??
Ain't gonna happen.

Other things I've bought recently:
A bottle of Ride-On tire sealant....Free shipping.
A spare rear wheel for my Wing off Ebay.
Damned thing must weigh 40 pounds. ...Free shipping.
Automobile wheel spacers that weighed about 20 pounds....Free shipping.
LED lights all the way from China....Free shipping.

You get the picture.

Hi, this is Jon (formerly with Pier28, but left a few months ago) I'm now operating the Street Guardian USA Amazon, eBay, online direct stores (North America distributor)

Street Guardian has some very nice dual channel remote lens dashcam products in development. Once ready in early 2017 we'll be adding waterproof cameras to make them motorcycle ready soon after the car model. No ETA but 2017 will be a good dual DVR year for motorcycles! I've held the prototype when I was in Hong Kong, but can't release detail just yet. More will be announced on dashcamtalk and I'll come back to post about it here once details are public.

Cost of the product plus shipping should be nearly the same as product plus free shipping.
If not then the product is of lesser or inferior quality to cover the free shipping.

I'm not taking sides, JUST say'n.

But $25 shipping is a BIT high.
Motorcycle tires are large and sort of heavy and they're around 20-25 bucks to ship in the 48 States.

If it had said "$5 shipping", my order would be in.
But $25? How about just tell the truth.

Just tried looking for Pier 28.
I'm guessing they are gone.
Their website doesn't come up.
At least I couldn't get a page to display.

Just saw this one on another forum.
Looks interesting with a dual camera setup.

If any previous customer was interacting with me (Jon) when I was with Pier28 I'm happy to help with your support questions still. As I said I launched a new company after departing Pier28 a few months ago. http://StreetGuardianUSA.com https://Facebook.com/StreetGuardianUSA

I also just launched a second company this month to sell non-Street Guardian products. http://OCDtronic.com https://Facebook.com/OCDtronic

I'll see if OCD Tronic can get more Biker Mate/Pro's in stock in the near future. (Stand by to Stand by)

Ok, I finally got the Pier 28 site.
They don't list the Biker Pro anymore.
Guess they stopped carrying it.
Right now, it seems the only place that you
can get it is from BulletHD.
Jon, if you can get this camera at a reasonable
price (and shipping rate) I'd buy it from you.
My hot button just got pushed big time when
I saw the shipping charge.

Hi,
I'm curious about what camera goldwingers are using at this current date? Is a helmet mount good or one that's mounted to the bike. Any current information would be of great help. Thank you all.

I'm using an older Drift HD720 on my helmet and a cheap dashcam mounted to the windshield of the sidecar...

It is awesome! We came from a Ural and it's like night and day difference! I just finished installing a Jeep seat in the sidecar for my wife and she has given it a thumbs up after a short ride last weekend. We'll be doing a longer ride this coming weekend - San Jose to Sacramento and back - so she'll get to see how she likes it on longer rides. It came with a cheap plastic shell with about an inch of foam for padding (a seat made for installing in a sand rail) and it didn't have much in the way of comfort for her - now it's got a well-padded, fully suspended seat for her riding pleasure!

The bike handles so much better than the Ural did, and it's so much more comfortable for me - when we bought it last year I rode it home about 650 miles and I could have kept going - on the Ural after about 2 hours I was ready to quit!

The shipping price for the Plus is $34.99. This is 20% of the selling price.
Very high!

Nice bike you have and I love that sidecar. I've been looking for used sidecar for my bike but it's kind of hard to find one and the new ones are out of my price. I'm a Purple Heart Vietnam Veteran and I have PTSD and TBI (Traumatic Brain Injury) with cognitive function involvement and Chrionc lymphocytic leukemia from Agent Orange exposure. I'd like to get one for 2 reasons. I have a problem with balance now and them and I want to take my girl Betty with me, I need her with me. She's a mix of Boxer and Pitbull and just the best thing that happen to me.

I'm excited about getting a cam for the rear and front of the bike. Thank you for taking the time to answer me.

Hey Everyone, this is Jon again (Formerly with Pier28)

As I said, I moved on and now operate Street Guardian USA & OCD Tronic Distribution.

Good news, a fantastic new Biker camera is coming soon to replace the Biker Pro.

-It has a complete different cable and connection system (no more raw HDMI)
-It has a send/receive error correction chip for a rock solid data throughput and zero corruption reliability with the video cable
-The water proof rating is much better
-It will have a similar profile and shape
-It will have WiFi and a stable app
-It will have a better Sony Sensor for great low light night performance. (and higher quality lens)

I'll post the Brand/Make/Model details as soon as I'm allowed to do so. There is another Dual Channel model in the works as well but is a bit further out.
I just got back from a Business trip in Hong Kong (And Shenzhen China) and will be the exclusive Amazon seller to insure everyone receives top notch customer service and after sales support.

Stand by to Stand by, just wanted to give a little taste of what's to come this summer! I might even be at various motorcycle shows around the country with the Factory owner.

That's good news Jon, however with riders who bought the BulletHD Pro and then replaced it with the BulletHD Pro Plus,like myself, being told there is a new bike camera coming down the pipe is not exactly encouraging. My BulletHD Pro Plus has completely stop working, like the Bullet HD Pro did and I am now out of pocket a considerable amount of money. I understand electronics can be finicky, and sometimes the Mfg. needs time to work out the kinks, but when you try to get help and or information on your camera and you can't find anything on the Internet any more, well it really sucks. I myself will be delaying any new purchase of a bike camera till I see a proven product. Sorry for being a stick in the mud but you can appreciate I have a bad taste in my mouth. Hopefully this new camera will put things right and work as advertised. BTW I'm not pissed with you, but you are the only one who I can vent to, as there is no one else available from BulletHD.

Confidence is very high on this new product coming this summer. It's not made by BulletHD and all the design flaws in those previous products have been more than rectified. (And it's a different chipset and factory)

As a jester of goodwill OCD Tronic is willing to take over existing warranty support and or give steep discounts to previous Pier28/BulletHD customers.

I'll post details as soon as I've been authorized to do so. Stay tuned.

I'm in the same boat except i bought 4 of the damn pos's. Only one is still working and it's starting to mess up. It'll be a long while before i spend $200 on 1 camera again, let alone $800 for 4 cams!

Glad to hear it, Jon.

After reading some of the other comments, I'm REALLY glad that I didn't
buy the Biker Pro last year when I posted here about the shipping charge.

I'm waiting in anticipation.

Hello yes I just helped edit the English version of the quick start guide user manual. Let me ask Rock if or when I can release full details. (Model name/price/specs etc) Production is supposed to be ramping up soon after a few minor action items at the factory were green lighted.

INNOVV Update: Rock said we can release the Model name, Tech Specs, and Photos only after the official web site page launches in about 2 weeks.
(He is working on the product page this weekend actually)

There are a couple last minute hardware changes, and new improved Novatek SDK (software development kit update from the chip factory) he wants to compile the latest firmware with that caused a 2 week delay. Let's just say I'm very impressed they dug in so deep with the internal beta testing. Final minor hardware improvements made will make this thing that much more stable. (beyond past products) Production should be in full swing early-mid July if no further delays pop up. I'm happy Rock is the type to wait to release something that's ready, and not rush it out the door like some factories do.

I'll post the link to the live product page as soon as it goes live, and will be happy to answer questions from there.
We're looking forward to offering a great motorcycle camera that's actually done right this time.

I hope what you're working on isn't another INNOVV C3.
From what I've read, that camera was just as unreliable
as the BikerPro.

Rock separated from his previous business partners that designed the C1/C3. That one had no send receive error correction and HDMI connection wasn't the right hardware to use in this type of product.

The new model is being made at a different factory and will be completely different. Send receive error correction, up spec sensor, up spec cable, up spec USB-C connector, up spec chipset, new app, up spec housing etc. Rock has full control this time and made the absolute best quality decisions possible. I have a lot of confidence it will be great.
